Pro 4.0 Native Installation Bug
Posted: Wed Aug 02, 2006 8:22 pm
Hello, it's me again.
I was asking myself if the problem that happened to me after updating the whole system was the bug that just appeared on the news. The "I cannot boot" error.
If it is, how can I repair it? Rescktoox and magic? simply run magic when offered to enter root user for repair?
I need to save my installation

What was the error you were receiving?

I quote you the complete post
Recently I updated my pro 2.0 with magic and it told me that this version could not be compatible with something (sorry I can't now remember if it was magic, emerge, portage or something completely different). The matter is that during start up sequence the system fails checking the root partition.
Here is the message:
Code: Select all
Partition /dev/hda2 is mounted with write permissions, cannot check it
after that if I enter my root password and run fsck it tells me there are no errors with the filesystem, so the problem is just with he boot script.
How can I repair this? The installation is native, with no loop back.
And by the way, whats is the most recomendable way to update from a x.0 to a x+1.0 version of Gentoox? I want to update from 2.0 to 4.0 and boot loader too, but don't know how.
Thanks for your help
edit: Partition is reiserfs

Thats to do with the /etc/init.d/checkroot script - you need to pretty much empty out the part that runs fsck. This was fixed with Pro v4 and Home v6.

Ook, thats the answer I needed, many thanks.
And, uh, whats the proper way to update a 2.0 to 4.0? Running magic?

There is no way to update. You have to install the latest version which deletes the old version.
